Publisher's Summary
The Bradens are a series of sexy standalone romances. These hot contemporary romance novels feature alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to listeners who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women's fiction.

Fall in love with Ty Braden, a world-renowned mountain climber and nature photographer. He's about to take on his toughest assignment yet - winning the heart of the one that got away.

Do you believe in fate?

World-renowned mountain climber and nature photographer Ty Braden never believed in second dates, much less heart-pounding, steal-his-breath love. But that was before a trip to Saint-Luc, where he met funny, strong, and entrancingly beautiful Aiyla Bell, a ski instructor and fellow photographer whose hopes and dreams, and love of the outdoors, aligned perfectly with his - and whose kisses alone turned him inside out.

After spending five magical days and four sweet, soulful nights falling in love, Aiyla couldn't imagine a day without Ty. But when he asked her to go with him on his next assignment, his reputation for having women at his beck and call stopped her from upending the life she'd worked so hard to create.

Months later, fate steps in when a chance encounter brings Ty and Aiyla together for a five-day wilderness event held in the Colorado Mountains. Their deep, passionate connection is stronger than ever, and Ty is bound and determined not to lose her again. But when tragedy strikes and their worlds are turned upside down, their love faces the truest test of all.

My Thoughts…

When listening to a book rather than reading it I find that I can let the words I am hearing soak into me.    I hear tones, feelings, and emotions that I missed while reading the book.      I catch phrases, sentences, and thoughts that I may have skimmed over while reading.   While listening to Thrill of Love I decided that I need a Braden playground and that Aiyla is a very lucky girl to have one to herself.   Ty is also lucky to have let fate take control and trust that he would find the love of his life after leaving her behind.  BJ Harrison is phenomenal.    He is a narrator that knows how to use his voice to pull the listener in and keep them invested in the story.      

Grab your Kleenex.    I am not sure that I have ever cried in sadness during one of Melissa Foster’s Love in Bloom series books.  Yet with Ty and Aiyla’s story, I full out had tears rolling down my cheeks.    Do not get me wrong, this is a wonderful book with amazing characters. 

Thrill of Love is a story of second chances and believing in fate.   Ty Braden, sigh… love those Braden men… meets the woman of his dreams but his reputation gets in the way of their relationship.    Promises of not to chase Aiyla down leave it up to fate to bring them back together.  Of course, in true Melissa Foster style fate steps in and brings them back together.    It is obvious from the beginning that something is off with Aiyla and she is fighting to push through her pain.     I love that Ty doesn’t let her just put her pain aside and makes her see his doctor friend, Speed, to find out what is happening.   Then when they find out what they are dealing with there is never a doubt that together they can conquer all things.    Love wins out, as it should. 

The Braden creed of Family knows no boundaries is proven over and over with these strong, proud, alpha Braden men.   Ty Braden is a testament that being a Braden is a way of life, one that must be lived up to, respected, and loved.
